In their third show on BlogTalkRadio, Murphy visited Chuck and Mike but they persevered and had a great show anyway. Before we describe the show, here are the player and links:

Sherwood Ross

Sherwood Ross called for a deeper investigation into 9/11 and the connections between the Bush and bin Laden families.

Sherwood’s research as always was top-notch, his logic strong, and his delivery impeccable.

Sam Smith

Sam Smith was a co-founder of the DC Statehood Party and helped organize the Association of State Green Parties (which has become today’s Green Party. We discussed the viability and usefulness of third-party campaigns both at local and presidential levels.

Sam’s thoughts on what happens after the election were especially illuminating.

The News from Mount Liberty included an insightful look at the news business in a small town; we always enjoy reading this segment.

So–where did Murphy come in? Well, the call to first guest Sam Smith wouldn’t work, so we proceeded with the show and heard a great column from Sherwood Ross. While Sherwood was talking Sam Smith’s phone number showed up in the studio, so Chuck talked to him after all–nothing wrong with changing the order of events a little, right? The new intro went well but the song was too long so we had to cut that short too. We ended up going over our planned one hour show–good thing we book a 90 minute time slot!

Sometimes when we have problems like this we end up doing a better show than when things go smoothly…you be the judge.

We hope you like the show and we’d love to have you tell us what you think.
